Brazil-Argentina waterfalls magic
These waterfalls have to be seen to be believed. You may either visit Iguazu Falls from the Brazilian side, where it will be possible to also get another view from a helicopter ride, or from the Argentinian side. Boat rides to get close to the Falls are possible on both sides. The best time to see them is in July, but they are accessible all year round, and are still beautiful at other times. You can combine this trip with visits to Buenos Aires to enjoy its delights, including dancing the Tango in one of its many dedicated bars. Or head to Rio de Janeiro to sip on a jelly coconut, as you stroll the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, strike a pose at the colourful Escalaron steps, or take the train or shuttle to gaze at the Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer statue) in Corcovado. The pulsating beats of the Samba schools are also within your reach. If you choose to visit in February, you will be able to join the revellers in Rio as it will be Carnival time.
